This is definitely becoming (or has already become) very relevant today as some people are already referring the “game layer” as Social Networking 3.0. There’s a great presentation from Seth Priebatsch on the TED site at:

Also there are already some “reality” games starting to popup already at:

There is a huge opportunity for government as it not only increases awareness but encourages citizens to get engaged in exchange for “social currency” or status points (a la the way this site allots points and grants rankings).
